    "This is the most cheapest business you can be in...there is very few data feeds that are that most of a overhead...think abou it....how many business have a few hundred dollar overhead a month....that you can have potential to make thousands????"

    It IS funny to read guys worryng about spending a few bucks per month on one of the most important tools a trader has.. good data . But these same would-be "traders" are going to risk many times that in each trade! Think they need to sit down and rationally re-think those penny-wise/pound foolish thoughts!

    Transaction cost savings per trade are much more important IMO because that is directly related to the margin% of profit (losses):D

    I don't know if they are the least expensive. I use their service, and find it very valuable. Interactive brokers has inexpensive real time data also, but there is no backfill.

  9. as for data software utilities - TS Support`s products seems to provide the best good price/quality ratio, besides the fact that some their products are unique.

    check their site if interested
